JK Rubicon wheels on 08 WK fit?

I bought a set of Rubicon wheels and tires (BF Goodrich Mud Terrain 255/75/R17) that I want to put on my 08 WK. Could someone please let me know what I need to get them on. I have heard of people talking about spacers but I'm not sure what is the best option. Do I need to add a lift or level kit to avoid rubbing?

Pinch weld mod and spacers(1.25") to make them fit.

thanks for the response, I just ordered the (1.5") wheel spacers. Now Im wondering if i were to lift it or just level the front would there still be a need for the pinch weld mod?

255/75R18 from my Sahara, no mods/spacers, minimal rub at full steer. I don't wheel it...yet might some day just to beat the piss out of it though, it's a POS and I would like to have a little fun with it some day.
